Famed actor Seth Rogen on Tuesday unveiled with typical comic fanfare the trailer for his new Christmas film.

The movie “was made by Jews… and opens on Thanksgiving,” Rogen pointed out on Twitter.

The Night Before tells the tale of three “ride or die homies” celebrating one last debauchery-filled Christmas Eve reunion before they become too busy to keep up their annual tradition. In an effort to make the night as memorable as possible, they set out to find the “Nutcracka Ball – the Holy Grail of Christmas parties.”

Rogen plays the only Jew in the trio, and a conspicuous Jew at that. Throughout the trailer he is seen wearing a holiday sweater with a large Star of David embroidered onto the front. His two buddies in the film are played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie.

The Columbia Pictures movie is directed by Jonathan Levine.

The Night Before hits theaters on Nov. 25. Watch the trailer below:

    Jews Boast of Owning Hollywood—But Slam Gentiles Who Say the Same

    Jews have been at the forefront of secularizing Christmas for years. Free country, do whatever – your right.

    But why is it Jews have kept Hollywood essentially run by them, 2.5% of the country, while the Left preaches “diversity” – why is it that it is hard to find a tv show, or movie, without a handful of jews in top positions?

    I’m asking, and no – it’s not “anti-Semitism” to ask about Jewish Privilege.

  • Glenn edwards

    What a delightful combination of xenophobia and jingoism. One would wonder what would happen should a Hollywood film be made based on comical or demeaning portrayals of Yom Kippur or Rosh Hashanah. Does this film represent the best of those with social lives, jobs , money. Aye, there’s a rub. Time for all of you to go back to irony school.

    Wait……..are you guys saying the black dude is Jewish too?

  • Russell Grayson

    Rogen’s movies are, indeed, easily dismissed as formulaic, uninspiring, leadenly acted, and focused toward the male adolescent audience–surely not my first choice for a double sawbuck and a night out. That said, why can’t a shmuck make a buck? As long as there are those who want to see his product, he’ll keep turning it out. I don’t mind when I get to waste two hours on one of his fresh piles on cable, when there’s nothing older of quality on and I’ve already seen every mediocrity being offered ad nauseum on 175 channels. Beats reality TV any day, and I may actually laugh despite myself. Don’t dump on Seth because he’s figured an angle for success and keeps milking it. Seems like the smart thing to do. Ride that wave until it hits the beach, Seth!

    Dreck. Rogen is one of the world’s prime purveyors.

    Regularly weird creepy Jew haters fill online comment sections.

    Angry and resentful because the lack social lives, jobs, money, intelligence, life experience?

    Rather than getting a life it’s easier just to blame others for your misery.

    • Bee

      Did you even read the comment? Seth Rogen is the anti-Semitic one, since he seems to be believe that if you look like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Paul Rudd, James Franco, Zac Efron, etc. you can’t be Jewish and should play a non-Jew while Seth plays an ugly Jewish caricature.

    • Josh

      More of the same tired, ad-hominem rhetoric directed at anyone who points out Jewish Hollywood’s Christian/Islam lambasting propaganda films or anything concerning Israeli foreign & domestic policies, their influence of our politicians or anything having to do with Zionism &/or Talmudic Judaism, which people can do all they want to Christianity & Islam in this country without being attacked with terms like your ignorant description of “creepy Jew haters with no money or social lives”. Funny double standard. Despite that, I say honestly & from my heart, God bless you.

    Is the Nazi propaganda department still making movies?

    This is another film where fat ugly Jew Seth Rogen plays an explicitly Jewish character, while good-looking Jewish actors (Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Lizzy Caplan, this time) play non-Jews. As a matter of fact, despite being the son of two Jewish parents, Gordon-Levitt has never explicitly played his own ethnicity once in his entire 30 years of acting. Is there a problem, Joey?

    This is the same racist trick Rogen pulls every time. He always casts himself as an explicit Jewish character opposite non-Jewish characters played by good-looking Jews (Paul Rudd, James Franco, Dave Franco, Zac Efron, Halston Sage, etc.).

    And this new film is from the same studio, S.S.ony, that released last year’s Fury, about fighting Nazis during WWII. Fury starred no less than four Jews (Logan Lerman, Jon Bernthal, Jason Isaacs, and Shia LaBeouf), yet none of the characters were Jewish and Jews and the Holocaust were never mentioned. Gee, maybe they should have cast Seth Rogen as a “funny” Jewish soldier who died early on in the film.

    Actors of fully Jewish background: Logan Lerman, Natalie Portman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mila Kunis, Bar Refaeli, James Wolk, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Julian Morris, Adam Brody, Esti Ginzburg, Kat Dennings, Gabriel Macht, Erin Heatherton, Odeya Rush, Anton Yelchin, Paul Rudd, Scott Mechlowicz, Lisa Kudrow, Lizzy Caplan, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Gal Gadot, Debra Messing, Robert Kazinsky, Melanie Laurent, Shiri Appleby, Justin Bartha, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Margarita Levieva, Elizabeth Berkley, Halston Sage, Seth Gabel, Corey Stoll, Mia Kirshner, Alden Ehrenreich, Eric Balfour, Jason Isaacs, Jon Bernthal, William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy.

    Andrew Garfield and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are Jewish, too (though I don’t know if both of their parents are).

    Actors with Jewish mothers and non-Jewish fathers: Jake Gyllenhaal, Dave Franco, James Franco, Scarlett Johansson, Daniel Day-Lewis, Daniel Radcliffe, Alison Brie, Eva Green, Joaquin Phoenix, River Phoenix, Emmy Rossum, Rashida Jones, Jennifer Connelly, Sofia Black D’Elia, Nora Arnezeder, Goldie Hawn, Ginnifer Goodwin, Amanda Peet, Eric Dane, Jeremy Jordan, Joel Kinnaman, Ben Barnes, Patricia Arquette, Kyra Sedgwick, Dave Annable, Ryan Potter.

    Actors with Jewish fathers and non-Jewish mothers, who themselves were either raised as Jews and/or identify as Jews: Ezra Miller, Gwyneth Paltrow, Alexa Davalos, Nat Wolff, Nicola Peltz, James Maslow, Josh Bowman, Winona Ryder, Michael Douglas, Ben Foster, Jamie Lee Curtis, Nikki Reed, Zac Efron, Jonathan Keltz, Paul Newman.

    Oh, and Ansel Elgort’s father is Jewish, though I don’t know how Ansel was raised. Robert Downey, Jr. and Sean Penn were also born to Jewish fathers and non-Jewish mothers. Armie Hammer and Chris Pine are part Jewish.

    Actors with one Jewish-born parent and one parent who converted to Judaism: Dianna Agron, Sara Paxton (whose father converted, not her mother), Alicia Silverstone, Jamie-Lynn Sigler.

  • Steve

    This movie is a racist piece of st where ugly Jew Rogen plays a Jew but good looking Jews Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Lizzy Caplan play non-Jews. The same formula as most of Rogen’s films.

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt, by the way, has never played his own ethnicity, Jewish, in 30 years of acting. What’s the matter, Joey, you got a problem?
